      "IFFCO recognizes that palm oil is one of the key ingredients that it sources, processes and trades within its business. Palm oil is the largest traded vegetable oil in the world; it is highly efficient in terms of yield per hectare and a highly versatile ingredient for food, feed, fuel and oleochemical products. With all of these strengths, producing palm oil sustainably is of utmost importance to the world, and subsequently to IFFCO's long-term business" [...] "We recognize that our nature of business depends on agricultural products such as palm oil. IFFCO palm-based facilities are 100% certified by the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO). In 2020, our customers trusted the Oils & Fats facility in Egypt to produce IFFCO’s first RSPO Segregated palm products."

          "IFFCO’s milestone is to achieve full traceability to mill by mid-2019 and traceability to plantation by 2021. Given that IFFCO Group does not own or operate oil palm plantations and mills, thus 100% of the oil comes from third party mills, aggregators or refiners, IFFCO’s action plan will consist of: Establishing IFFCO’s global footprint and baseline traceability scores for palm oil. Working on traceability to mill by collecting mill name and GPS coordinates. Working with suppliers to map the supply base and achieve traceability to plantations. Analyzing the risks and opportunities of our suppliers. During 2018, IFFCO has focused its efforts to collect all names and respective GPS coordinates of third party mills that supply  IFFCO Tier 1 Refineries (Refineries that receive CPO).

          What criteria does the policy specify for blacklisting or exclusion?: Reports of non-compliance against the no deforestation policy
          "When allegation against Tier 1 supplier is received or made known to IFFCO, it is registered in the IFFCO system as Issues. IFFCO’s traceability data is then compared to ascertain the level of exposure of the specific supplier in IFFCO supply chain or footprint. The Issues is classified based on criteria to determine validity, priority to IFFCO, and degree of the allegation. IFFCO will seek clarification and further information from the reported Tier 1 and indirect suppliers on the subject of the issues, before further engagement is to take place to encourage development of action plans to address the issues along with timeline. [...] Issues are evaluated and assessed against a set of criteria for decision making. These criteria are used to determine the validity of the complaints, the degree of significance of the issues, the priority rating for IFFCO, and assessment of whether good and sufficient progress is demonstrated. [...] Re-entry to the supply chain This procedure sets requirement for IFFCO and its direct suspended suppliers to work towards re-entry into the supply chain. For environmental non-compliant, the minimum requirement includes: a. Commitment to adhere to NDPE policy b. Disclosure of concession map boundaries and list of subsidiary companies c. Planted areas and areas of remaining forest and peat d. Commitment to conservation and/or restoration where relevant. It is encouraged that the commitment is connected to support and contribute to a multistakeholder landscape-level sustainability initiative"
